  • In 1721 - the chapel was renovated - the costs were borne by the Rattenberg municipal clerk Johann Georg Salzburger
  • 1724 - the small church was consecrated, i.e. transferred to the sacred realm
  • 1781-1790 - Emperor Joseph IIs' reform efforts (Josephinian Church Reform, Edicts of Tolerance) led to the confiscation of the chapel
  • 1848 - after several changes of ownership, the chapel was sold by public auction and is currently owned by the Kostenzer family, "Steinpeißer", Kramsach.
  • 1957 - the chapel on the bank of the Brandenberger Stream was converted into a war memorial chapel. The chapel's unusual, rich in symbols interior was designed by the academic sculptor Gret Einberger-Mäser from Kramsach.
